A MEGAPROJECT FOR SUCKING CARBON DIOXIDE OUT OF THE ATMOSPHERE

If you think this is the most important endeavor you could work on 

Megaprojects are large-scale, transformational projects that impact millions of people.

 

Examples of Megaprojects:

  • The Apollo Program

  • The Large Hadron Collider

  • COVID-19 vaccines 

Removing huge amounts of carbon dioxide is one of the major challenges of our time. There is no proven way to solve this challenge. 

 

If we're going to be successful in this endeavour, we’re going to need a lot of different approaches to be trialled. We're going to need to enable all the best people to experiment and learn from one another. 

 

This is a critical collective effort and that's why a megaproject is required.

R E S O L V E is a Megaproject to provide scientists with the most effective path to roll out their carbon capture and storage solutions to remake the world 

 

WE CREATE COMPANIES TO BE PART OF THE MEGAPROJECT

C O M P A N I E S

 


 Each company created as part of the Megaproject has these attributes:

 

SCALE: Removes 500 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

METERABLE: Capable of being simply measured with observable output 

PERMANENT: Carbon Dioxide is captured & stored permanently

R E S O L V E

Provides a team, including a proven CEO who has scaled a company to $100m+ in revenue. The CEO is responsible for all the business operations.

S C I E N T I S T S

Become Chief Scientific Officers and co-founder of the new business. You can focus on the science of capturing and storing carbon dioixide and the RESOLVE team will take care of the rest.

If you are a scientist or engineer that has a unique insight into how to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

FOUNDERS

SAM BARNETT

We share many odd similarities: We have the same initials. We are the same height. We each have three daughters. We worked together at Struq -  which we built across Europe & America and sold to Quantcast. When Struq was sold we agreed to start a business together. 6 years later, here we are!

After Struq, Seb became the CEO of Skimlinks, quadrupled gross revenue to £100m and sold it in 2020 to a large US  tech company -  turning a company that was struggling and burning millions annually into one that grew aggressively and produced 8 digits of ebitda in the year it was acquired. 

Sam was the founder and CEO of Struq which was acquired by Quantcast. At Quantcast, he became Chief Product Officer

(- 22 offices, ~1000 people). Sam then joined Entrepreneur First ($150M VC fund backed by Reid Hoffman, Peter Thiel etc) as President and Partner which has created and funded 300+ deep tech companies which are worth more than $3bn. 

 While doing that, we’ve also:

  • Broken the Guinness World Record for largest online art class to raise money for those most impacted by COVID

  • Helped organizations providing census data and technology to developing countries so they can make better policy decisions

  • Created Street Art Murals in SF to raise awareness of those doing exceptional good in the world.
